Needles High School Junior Aniela Patalita has the honor of being awarded the Horatio Alger State Scholarship. The Horatio Alger State scholarships are awarded to eligible students in all fifty states. The program specifically assists high school students who have faced and overcome great obstacles in their young lives. The scholarships are funded by Horatio Alger Members who, like the Scholars, have experienced challenges but ultimately overcame them to become successful business and civic leaders. Congratulations Aniela!!
